Merry: Where are we going?

Aragorn: Into the wild.

Merry: (To Frodo.) How do we know this "Strider" really is a friend of Gandalf?

Frodo: If he was evil, he would look fairer and feel fouler.

Merry: He's foul enough!

Frodo: We are left no choice. We trust him.

Sam: Where are we going?

Aragorn: To Ruffendell.

Sam: You were right, Mr. Frodo! We are going to see the elves!
